Spending his formative years in the high school darkroom, Ryan discovered a love and affinity of using the camera for storytelling. Graduating from Columbia College: Chicago he focused in Cinematography and was given the opportunity to join Chicago’s IATSE 476 where he worked both Grip & Electric departments for almost a decade, training his eye in the art of lighting & composition.   His career as a DP began in low-budget shorts, would steadily progress from documentary & commercial work to the eventual full length feature & episodic television. In 2018 his goal of becoming a cinematographer solidified when he joined The International Cinematographer's Guild: Local 600. His most recent work, a 10 part mini-series called Bring on the Dancing Horses, premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2022.  Directed by Michael Polish and starring Kate Bosworth, the series follows a hitwoman determined to enact justice upon a group of eccentric criminals to the backdrop of Montana. Currently based in Los Angeles, Spacone spends much of his free-time hiking and camping in the mountains of California with his dog, Ginger where he still carries an old film camera in search of the perfect frame.
